This piece of Chalk Wallpaper for the longest time said, “It’s a boy!!” Emily and I just realized yesterday that it was probably time for a change. Emily asked me what I thought we should write…so I thought about it, and after a while, came to what you see above.
Today we received something in the mail saying that our rent was being raised, and then got a phone call no later than 20 minutes later saying Emily’s grandma was in the hospital with congestive heart failure (prayers for her would be appreciated!) I guess it’s best summed up by what a friend commented on in an earlier blog post:
“Hang on to our Savior and to one another! Satan is no wuss, and he knows how to fight dirty. But our Savior has already won your victory, so all will be well. His grace is sufficient! You’ll be telling us how he brought you through this time in another post not too long from now. ”When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” – Isa 43:2″
This is precisely the reason we put that on our chalkboard. God IS good ALL the time. Satan wants nothing more than for us to come on here and talk about how bad we have it and blame God for it. Nope, not gonna happen Satan. We may come on here and explain some of the situation, but we will praise OUR GOD through the storm. (Coincidentally it is storming right now).
We have to find joy’s in the little things in life right now. Here are some instances in which we do:
^Getting to facetime with our Nephew Bryson
^Catching our dog Diesel in the act of peeing on another dog we are watching (Sorry Bowie family!!)
^Enjoying a day with my beautiful wife
^Who doesn’t love endless root beer floats from Red Robin?
Take a moment this weekend and enjoy the little things friends.
James and Emily
